7th Anniversary of Guild Wars (+ Hound of Balthazar)

What’s happening this weekend? The Guild Wars 2 beta you say? Well, yeah, there’s that, but there’s also the 7th anniversary of the original Guild Wars! As part of these celebrations, the Guild Wars Live team has added a new pet to Guild Wars: the Hounds of Balthazar. This pet is based upon an elite skill that is included within Guild Wars 2 and it just looks amazing! If you want to acquire this pet, follow this handy guide we made for you and you’ll be the proud owner of one in no-time!

Acquiring the Hounds of Balthazar:

  • Travel to Embark Beach
  • Head over to the boat and talk to Ceira, Sworn to Fire
  • Travel to the Zaishen Menagerie
  • Be sure to change your second profession to Ranger (if you are no Ranger)
  • Take the skill Charm Animal with you on your skill bar
  • Go inside the Menagerie and travel to the North-East of the map
  • You’ll find 2 Hounds of Balthazar here at lvl 5 (unless you unlocked a further level) and a few puppies accompanying it.

The celebrations don’t end here though!

It’s time once again to throw open the Shing Jea Boardwalk, rev up the Rollerbeetles, and don our party hats for two weeks of festive fun from April 24th to May 8th. In addition to the usual games and gifts, we’re packing this party with drops and activities never before seen in an anniversary celebration!
